The Common Review

This little gem brings a spring to your step. And given that it’s on a major thoroughfare, I expect patronage to grow steadily. And if the food is anything to go by, then you are in for a treat!

Service
These people were on the ball. The moment we arrived, they were quick to offer us a seat and quickly cleared the table to ensure that our seats were easily catered for the number of attending guests.

Furthermore, I really loved their bottles of water. It was a great big bottle that you didn’t feel you had to keep asking for refills. And post meal, the clean up was just as quick. I appreciated not being hurried out even though they patrons hanging out the door.

.75/1.0

Food
I suffered from food envy. I really did. The Cheeseburger that KD had, looked and smelled really delicious.

Besides the pork belly was not what I expected. First of all, I cannot, repeat, can not fault them on their presentation. For a restaurant that delivers food that quickly, I was amazed at the attention to detail the chef had (hats off to you).

The bread was quite scrumptious and the coleslaw was light, refreshing and really tasty. Then again, anything in mayo is a delight to consume.

The pork belly. I mean, I had my reservations until the first bite. The crackling was tough but the meat was so tender and juicy that it literally melted in your mouth. Of course… once you got over the hard crackling.

But you know what, I am willing to forgive this slight. The juicy corn, spicy dip and gerkins made up for it!

1.75/2.0

Ambience
Even though it’s near such a busy road, the interior was well designed and sound proof enough that the conversation, even subtle whispers could be heard between the two attending parties. The interior was really amazing. I loved loved loved the design. It was well laid out and the coffee order/pay area was well placed.

Cost
Look, for the city, this place is on par. It’s not on the cheaper side nor is it too exhorbatant. It was…just right. I felt that it was spot on.

.5/1.0

My thoughts
Overall, I liked this place. I would recommend everyone I know to go here. Given that this place is in a very convinient location between my office buildings, I anticipate this will become a regular lunch spot for my work colleagues and myself.

TDT: 3.75/5.0
